Acupuncture is not only a fantastic natural solution for insomnia but has been outperforming drug therapies for insomnia. Research conducted at the Hangzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine compared the effectiveness of auricular acupuncture to Estazolam (a commonly used prescription medication to treat insomnia). They concluded that regular acupuncture treatments were more effective than the medication. The acupuncture treatments were shown to improve sleep duration, the quality of the sleep, reduce the occurrence of insomnia due to depression, and to improve a person’s overall daytime abilities.

Chinese Medicine has been used for thousands of years to increase the chances of pregnancy. Acupuncture can address infertility by reducing stress, balancing the endocrine system (hormones), and increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs. Due to the increase in blood flow to the uterus and reproductive organs, there is an increase of proper nourishment to the egg, thus, increasing chances of being carried to full term.

Patients are often surprised to hear that acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been used for centuries to treat symptoms of anemia such as tiredness, weakness and pale complexion. Recent studies have verified that acupuncture can enhance the levels of the serum ferratin. The needling of specific acupoints can bolster nutrients that can enhance iron absorption. When a person suffers from anemia, it is also logical that his or her diet needs to be addressed. Acupuncture can be the catalyst to enhance the digestive function and absorption of food, but we may look at adding nutritional supplements or herbs during the course of treatment. READ MORE
Absolutely! Acupuncture points are areas of designated electrical sensitivity. Inserting needles at these points stimulates various sensory receptors that, in turn, stimulate nerves that transmit impulses to the hypothalamic-pituitary system at the base of the brain. The hypothalamus-pituitary glands are responsible for releasing neurotransmitters and endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing hormones. It is estimated that endorphins are 200 times more potent than morphine. This is why acupuncture works well for all types of pain in the body. We'd be more than happy to help manage your joint pain!
